Abstract
Our study consists of determining the environments favorable to the harmonious development of the trees while answering our problem which is the failure of the techniques of reforestation. From a geomorphological study, the distribution of the environment favorable to the development of the trees is highlighted. Permanent, intermittent watercourses, saturation topographic indices and calculated drainage density allow the location and mapping of potentially suitable media. Different methods of applied numerical treatments such as drainage density, topographic index and temporary and permanent watercourse extraction have made it possible to locate and map the potentially wet media favorable to plant development.
